Full-Time Program


Exceptional Minds Full-Time Professional Training Program is designed for artists on the autism spectrum who are motivated and capable of learning the technical and work-readiness skills necessary to work independently in the competitive fields of Visual Effects and Animation.

We provide technical training in an array of professional software as well as professional training in portfolio creation, interview skills, and career path planning in order to focus the students’ career interests, prospects, and goals.

Our three-year Full-Time Program offers a crucial bridge between high school and opportunities for meaningful employment by building on the strengths of our students. Tuition Assistance may be available for those students accepted and enrolled in the program. If you would like to apply for tuition assistance, please see the FAST link on the Visit and Apply page.

*Please note that admission to the full-time program is a competitive process requiring a portfolio review. We also consider students for full-time who have previously participated in our part-time programming.
